Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Brightness issue What I have: Two pc's,(XPro&Ubuntu), two Acer Al1916 19" monitors, What I did: turned pc's on - then turned on monitors from wall power switch, one monitor is now >50% dimmer then the other. Have reset it multiple times and also swapped the monitors from one pc to the other. It's definitely the monitor that's dim and not a pc setting.  Is there some way to reset the monitor to default settings other then the menu option reset?

Acer p223w monitor does not turn on

Try a different monitor, check the connections to the pc. When the monitor light changes to orange, press the spacebar to see if the light changes back to blue. Your pc power settings might need to be re-adjusted, is the pc going to sleep or hibernating too soon?

Cannot view some webpages with acer p205h on ubuntu

This is unlikely to be a monitor issue, more likely a browser issue.
Please ensure you have the latest version of Ubuntu, Firefox and/or Google Chrome.
If this does not solve it, let us know which web pages you're having trouble with so we can take a look.

My acer makes a whining noise whenever its brightness is set to low how can i fix it?

that buzzing noise is frequency response from the cathodes (back lights) and the inverter inside that monitor.

Personally, i'd keep the brightness up a bit more to alleviate the issue. I'd also check to see if the power that is going to the device is clean. Sometimes there can be issue with power causing frequency disturbance and can cause some pretty random issues with power sensitive devices.

Try running a battery backup or power strip to see if it helps.

My acer AC713 monitor's brightness value gets reduced to zero.

Dear sir,

This is common problem arises mainly due to moisture,especially in rainy season,Monitor front panel control buttons remain pressed,due to deposition of ferric oxide and moisture in between monitor botton panel and circuit board.So you can dry this moisture by hanging a bulb of 60 watt nearer a monitor about 4-5 hrs,(too near may damage the internal heat sensitive parts.).It solves your problem.....and also you may clean the inner monitor button contacting circuit by means of PCB cleaner to wipe out ferric oxide deposition.
if you had any query regarding this issue leave a feedback we glad to assist you.

good luck.

Power supply on 17" acer monitor

franh, Typical of a lcd/fpd monitor! There is nothing you or hundreds of others can do to repair it all by yourself. I have repaired 3 monitors and helped tutor 2 others on fixya with their monitors. All had same exact symptom as your monitor. I need you to do a simple test for me. With failed Acer monitor near to your Fully Booted PC with a known good desktop being displayed on back-up monitor, quickly swap out the monitor cables from the back of the PC. Keep touching the CTRL key on you keyboarb every 30-50 seconds to keep the PC from sending out sleep mode command to monitor while doing the reconnect of acer to your PC monitor output port. Make sure the Acer also is connected to a live wall outlet/power strip. Turn on the Acer and note what happens. If screen shows a sharp clear image for a second, then goes black, do the following. Get a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen from a distance of 1 or 2 inches and tell me if you can see the desktop display. get back to me with your observations. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@

See if your video card inside your PC hasn't come loose. Take it out and push it back in again to reseat the card. Then, once it's firmly secured, try the monitor.
